Adam Walton playlist and show info: Sunday 12 June 2011
This week's show is now available via the BBC iPlayer. Please visit the link any time between now and the start of the next programme.
The show features an exclusive live session from The Lowland Hundred. Tim & Paul, as they're known to their folks, marry bruised, pastoral folk(ish) songs with hissing field recordings and unsettling ambient soundscapes. Paul's plaintive voice can breach the most impervious heart. There is no one in Wales making music like The Lowland Hundred. There's no one anywhere making music quite like this, and we're honoured to have them in session.
Their debut album, Under Cambrian Sky, is very highly recommended. It earned excellent reviews in publications as august and respected as Mojo, the Quietus and The Line of Best Fit. So, it's not just me who thinks so.
Elsewhere Huw Williams reminds us of Christine Evans, one of Wales' answers to Dusty Springfield. A blue-eyed, pop soul chanteuse who released a small handful of perky, orchestrated singles in the mid-'60s, then promptly disappeared. We'd love to know more about her. Please email email@example.com if you have any information as to Christine's whereabouts and musical-doings after her spell at Philips Records.
Ben Hayes comes in to pay a considered tribute to the legendary - and recently deceased - producer, Martin Rushent.
And I have oodles of the finest music I could get my grubby hands on over the last week, including debut plays for John Stammers, The Deaf Club, Tiny Skitz, Harry Keyworth and Jessica Lee Morgan.
Please send new releases/demos/gig info/recommendations/thoughts & anagrams to firstname.lastname@example.org (as a download link or high quality .mp3), or via the BBC Introducing Uploader.
My preference is to receive your music via e-mail, but whatever suits you best will suit me too.
